The hype will start from Day 1. And the best Corona del Mar High girls cross country team ever assembled under 22-year head man Bill Sumner is set to take the stage this season.

The Corona del Mar High girls tennis team looked dominant coming into the season, and it still could be. But the Sea Kings, who captured their eighth consecutive Pacific Coast League title and reached the CIF Southern Section Division I semifinals last year, will try to win without No. 1 singles player Jill Damion -- at least for a while. The junior phenom tried to play through a sore shoulder this summer, but an MRI about a month ago detected a slight tear in the rotator cuff of her right shoulder.

The Corona del Mar High football team continued its success rushing the ball through the early part of the season Friday night in a nonleague contest against Troy. But the Sea Kings had some company running alongside. Troy's tag-team backfield of junior Chris Ramirez and sophomore Derrick Coleman exploited holes forged by the offensive line and the Warriors' defense stymied CdM's final drive to stake a 25-18 victory in front of 2,000 spectators at Newport Harbor High.

After viewing film of last year's team, knowing he will have several returners from a CIF Southern Section Division I semifinalist, first-year Corona del Mar High boys water polo coach Barry O'Dea doesn't believe much will change in the pool once the games begin next month. But what many of his players must deal with is the adjustment once again of a coaching change. O'Dea, 32, hired to replace 2004 Division I Coach of the Year Sam Bailey this summer, will be the program's fourth leader in as many years this fall.

It stands to reason that Corona del Mar High School's surf team was resurrected out in the water, surfer to surfer, as they waited for the next set to roll in. The Sea Kings surfed Wednesday against Mater Dei in their Sea View League opener, a noteworthy event in itself considering where the surfing program was at Corona del Mar just over a year ago — dry, up on the surf racks in the garage, collecting cobwebs. Corona del Mar had been without a competitive surf team since the mid-1990s, and in the meantime, neighboring Newport Harbor High has become among the best high school surf teams in the nation, placing third in the National Scholastic Surfing Assn.

COSTA MESA — It took a great effort by Kyle Middlebrooks to finally put Fountain Valley in command of Thursday night’s nonleague football game against Palos Verdes. The junior tailback took a direct handoff from quarterback Dominic Ragland, first had to hurdle a would-be tackler at the line of scrimmage and then squirmed his way past a host of Sea Kings and sprinted toward the end zone. Middlebrooks finally reached it but not before he twisted and turned his way the final seven yards to paydirt.

In a key run in the Pacific Coast League boys' cross country title race, a banged-up Laguna Beach High team was defeated by host Corona del Mar, 24-33, at Bonita Creek Park Thursday. Last year, Laguna defeated the Sea Kings by a point. Corona del Mar is ranked seventh in the county. "Their varsity boys are healthy and run close together," Laguna coach Dave Brobeck said. "We are nursing our dings still, although we are getting healthy quickly, and I didn't want to really race them all-out yet. "The course was concrete with several long, pounding downhills, and I didn't want to risk further injury, so I chose to keep my guys in their training shoes and run controlled races.
